World Ovarian Cancer Day

We've been raising awareness of ovarian cancer like never before.

90% of women don't know the four main symptoms of ovarian cancer - we're on a mission to change that. 

We know that raising awareness is at the top of your agenda; it's on ours too. 

This World Ovarian Cancer Day, we worked hard to reach people who don't know the four main symptoms and educate them on how important it is to act if they experience any of these symptoms. 

We partnered with Twitter to spread the word and reach millions of people. Take a look at the impact we made in the first 72 hours. 

You're helping us reach millions with lifesaving information

Ignoring ovarian cancer won't beat it. But we know that so many people ignore the symptoms and ignored our four symptom accounts on Twitter. That's why our video, highlighting Anna's ovarian cancer story, was so important. And we were overwhelmed by the response.

Together, through every tweet, every story shared and every single donation, we can make ovarian cancer a survivable disease.

Why are we doing this?

We’re doing this because one woman dies in the UK from ovarian cancer every two hours. And although five-year survival rates for ovarian cancer are improving, other cancers, such as breast cancer, had better survival rates two generations ago than ovarian cancer does today. Better ways to diagnose and treat women today are needed more than ever before.
